You don't see many proper punch ups these days, I remember Collymore having a right dust up at one match, Bolton away possibly? I tell you what else you don't see these days, free kicks inside the area with the wall all bunched up on the line. Didn't we concede one like that away at Liverpool in the mid 90s? What were they given for that wouldn't have seen a penalty awarded?

Keeper picking the ball up from a back-pass is the common one.

Might be the only one as the only other indirect freekick award I can remember used to be obstruction.

Similarly, I think if the keeper releases the ball from his hands and picks it up again then that's an indirect free-kick.

One that I don't recall seeing (but assume it would be), I think it's an indirect free-kick for deliberately delaying the restart of the game. So if a team had a free kick 20 yards out, decided to take it quickly by passing to someone in the box and the defender blocked the intended pass then that would presumably that would see the free-kick brought forwards to where the offence happened?

I've not seen a freekick advanced in years.

I was thinking about free kicks being awarded for obstruction inside the box when Man. United got away with that late one at Bournemouth.

We had one in the late 90s at surprise surprise Old Trafford when it was a clear penalty. Had to laugh at Gregory's post match interview when he said he asked a steward when was the last time a visiting team got a penalty and the reply was "Victorian era."



Incident at 4:44. They of course got a penalty that was ridiculously soft.

Ah yes, ta. Are they common though? As I said, I haven't seen one for many, many years.

Poor choice of word on my part. Common in that if you asked a hundred people in a "Pointless" style, that would be the commonest answer.

Most keepers have grown up with that rule in place so they and the defence don't instinctive do it, plus they also seemed to define the deliberation of the act. For example when Carlos out muscled Trossard and played the ball back, Martinez tried to stop the corner with his hands, which as the ball was a defenders intervention rather then a deliberate backpass, wouldn't have resulted in the freekick.

Here's the one I was thinking of away at Liverpool in 1994. Bosnich, for whom the backpass rule was just about the worst thing ever invented, stuffing things up mightily. Neil Ruddock scoring from the resulting free kick.

Villas next three matches , home to Bournemouth  and Chelsea and away to Brighton

Spurs next three matches, home to Arsenal then away to Chelsea and Liverpool.

I think if we can get 7 points from our games, putting us on 70 points, and spurs only 2 would put us 8 points ahead .....

With them needing to beat Burnley, Sheffield Utd and Man City to get more points than us even before our last 2 games against Liverpool and Palace.

It really is in our hands.

Spurs won only two of their last 10 away matches in the Premier League.

It’s just really important that we back up the level we hit against Arsenal in the next couple of games. The second half on Sunday, in particular, was exceptional. You could tell there was a clear plan and the players were laser focused. Away at Arsenal does sharpen the focus, but we have seen the team switching off in “lesser” games. Clearly how the games play out will be different, but it’s the focus and concentration that’s key for me.

With spurs anyone noticed how maddsions forms dipped? He seems to be a player that thrives when teams doing well but when they doing shit he seems to go hiding and throws tantrums
